Replace time zone to create new date-time
- a POSIXct, POSIXlt, Date, or chron date-time object.
- a character string containing the time zone to convert to. R must recognize the name contained in the string as a time zone on your system.
force_tz returns a the date-time that has the same clock time as x in the new time zone. Although the new date-time has the same clock time (e.g. the same values in the year, month, days, etc. elements) it is a different moment of time than the input date-time.
- a POSIXct object in the updated time zone
x <- as.POSIXct("2009-08-07 00:00:01", tz = "America/New_york") force_tz(x, "GMT") # "2009-08-07 00:00:01 GMT"}
